The awe-inspiring Hawaiian sunrise: add it to your bucket list.
I’ve been posting about these tropical islands a lot lately, and there’s many reasons why. First of all, Hawaii offers something for everyone: beautiful beaches, stunning rainforests, epic volcanoes, a rich local culture, and amazing food. It’s really like visiting a whole different country… almost a whole different planet from where I live in New York City. And while I would never tell anyone to not get their passport, if you don’t have one, no fear: you can still go to Hawaii!
One of my most memorable experiences in these islands was the morning I got up extra-extra early to watch the Hawaiian sunrise from Haleakala National Park. Sure, I lost out on a little beauty sleep, but after a cup of coffee and a quick breakfast, I was wide awake. I guess anticipation will do that for you!
In one of his Deep Thoughts, Jack Handey says, “With every new sunrise, there is a new chance. But with every sunset, you blew it.” There is no way you could start a day with a sunrise like this and think you day could somehow be ruined. Well, unless you don’t get that mid-morning nap you’ll need.
When it comes to mother nature, a photo or video is never as good as the real thing, but who knows? Maybe this clip will inspire you to finally book that Hawaiian adventure.
